Thanks for sharing that the 0-4-0 and 0-6-0 switchers will NOT have a wireless tether as the big print in the catalog states. The fine print says it will be a wired tether. I missed that. That is a deal killer for me. I love the true Lionel wireless tether, the old MTH anaconda was fine, but the MTH wireless circuit board tender for me was very troublesome. These switchers look like MTH Premier, and the photos in the catalog appear to show the troublesome circuit board tether.
I was very interested, almost ready to order the PRR 0-4-0, now I will hold off and see how they are when they are delivered.
